PubMed Commons is an experimental system of commenting on PubMed abstracts, introduced in October 2013. Comments are displayed on the abstract page, but during the initial closed pilot, only registered users can read or post comments. Any researcher who is listed as an author of an article indexed by PubMed is entitled to participate in the pilot. If you would like to participate and need an invitation, please email, giving the PubMed ID of an article on which you are an author. For more information, see the PubMed Commons FAQ.

Update from an Author

Because this case report was published with follow-up of just under two years, I am commenting at this time to briefly update this report. It is now beyond 3 years since this patient had electroconvulsive therapy. One of his parents reports that he remains off all psychotropic medication and his symptoms of anxiety and depression have not returned. He has transferred to a larger university, his academic life remains very good and his social life has improved. This will be my only update of this case report.
